Acer Laptop refusing to switch on

  john88 14:07 23 Jun 2007

I have an Acer Aspire 7003WSMi. I had to re-install windows as somehow windows explorer had become corrupted. I used my restore disc and everything appeared to be OK. When I received a message to restart my laptop I clicked yes and left the room. On my return it simply refuses to switch on. The light comes on momentarily but goes off again almost straightaway. Any ideas or experience of similar problems?

Remove battery run off mains only, does it make a difference?

reboot and keep tapping F8 see if it will let you get to safemode.

disable all power saving options in safemode.

if not try getting into BIOS and disable powr saving options in there.

I think this is a hardware problem. Looks like a return to Acer, it is only 6 months old!
Thanks again for your help Fruit Bat.

Try a restore again.
